Wow, somehow it is only June and yet Dave and I have already captured some truly gorgeous weddings of some of the very best people ever!! Every year we get luckier and luckier with the couples we have as they really are just the bestest ever and I am so eternally grateful that we get to work with them all! And of course Michelle + Colin were no exception. Not only are they super adorable and all around gorgeous people, but they are sweet, thoughtful and funny! I loved basically everything about their wedding day!
For the past few years I have posted a Thank You to all of the couples we worked with over the year. It is hard to find new words to describe how lucky we are to be able to capture these big days and really when it comes right down to it I think a heartfelt Thank You is the best I have.
Cultures and traditions are such an important and beautiful part of every wedding day. And throughout the weddings we have been lucky enough to be a part of we have seen a lot of different approaches and takes on North American traditions. But what I really love is seeing different traditions and cultures mixed into one truly memorable day, and that is exactly what Juliet + Blake had planned for their wedding. From Juliet’s accessories right up to their traditional dances during the reception it was so great to see the mix from both Canada and the Philippines.
Colour can have a pretty big impact on your wedding day. Your chosen colour is typically part of your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, stationary, and general decor. But picking a colour (or a couple colours) to match your personalities and represent your day can be difficult, especially if you are one of those people who doesn’t have one specific colour as your favourite. But picking one colour, or even two, was not what Juliet + Blake had in mind for their day, and I am oh so glad they went in such a vibrant direction!
I have mentioned this many times before, but I have the privilege of living in a really beautiful city. Ottawa is full of so many wonderful spots for engagement sessions that it is hard to start duplicating yourself too much. That being said, it is always a really nice treat when we get to venture outside of our city to capture sessions in spots that have an extra special meaning to our couples.
So when Jen + Jordan mentioned that they wanted to do have their engagement session at Mount Tremblant over on the Quebec side of things, we were super excited!!
